Mark Van Raamsdonk, University of British Columbia, for his highly original, influential contributions to several areas of theoretical physics, including string theory, quantum field theory, and quantum gravity. Highlights include advances in the theory of D-branes and other non-perturbative objects in string theory, the ultraviolet-infrared mixing in non-commutative quantum field theory, and the deconfinement transition in gauge theory, as well as his novel proposal that the emergence of spacetime is profoundly connected with quantum entanglement.

Melanie Campbell, University of Waterloo, for her unique contribution to apply the methods of polarization and adaptive optics to the understanding of eye functioning and eye diseases. Among others, her contributions to a better understanding of short-sightedness and to improve retina imaging are likely to have a major impact on the diagnosis and treatment of several eye diseases.
